Storyline

In Malawi, a country where magic rules and modern science is mystery, fourteen-year-old William Kamkwamba reads about windmills and dreams of building one that would bring to his small village a set of luxuries that only 2 percent of Malawians could enjoy: electricity and running water. His neighbors call him misala—crazy—but William refuses to let go of his dreams. With a small pile of once-forgotten science textbooks; some scrap metal, tractor parts, and bicycle halves; and an armory of curiosity and determination, he embarks on a daring plan to forge an unlikely contraption and small miracle that will change the lives around him.
